“One interesting trend observed this year is that companies are focussing on internships for second year BTech students, as a policy to spot talented students in the early stage of academic programmes,” Dr. Sameer said.
He said recruiters were primarily scouting for students who had an edge over others in terms of academic and co-curricular activities.
“Grades and CGPA are important. But students who have achievements in terms of prizes and active participation in hackathons, special projects, internships were preferred over the others,” he said, adding that summer internship for third-year BTech students was also on the high.
Certainly computer science has surpassed all other core branches of engineering. Recruiters also preferred students of electronics and communication, electrical engineering, mechanical and chemical engineering even as fresh opportunities opened for software domains.
Some of the recent recruiters includes Reliance Industries, Vedanta, IFB Limited, IBM, Thermofisher, Baker- Huges, ADP, and DXC
